This study evaluated an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) case study in physical education teacher education from a student perspective. Action research evaluated the impact of a range of ICT options on student teachers' learning to play as well as learning to teach games in a secondary school context. Although multiple media were utilized during the games course, the study focussed on the impact of vodcasts (video broadcasts) on student learning. Drawing on evidence from an earlier podcasting (audio broadcast) study, the research sought to assess and compare the effect as well as the affect of an enriched multi-media delivery. Multiple data collection measures (such as survey, focus group interview, email, e-portfolio and instant messaging) indicated that the students, who identified themselves as visual learners, valued the vodcasts more than the podcasts, which had previously been described as "awesome". Although the overall rating for ICT, with the addition of vodcasting, was lower than the rate given to podcasting two years earlier, the students provided a strong validation for its role in enhancing learning.
